88: How to help our kids cultivate a healthy relationship with food with Rachel Rothman

We all want to help our kids cultivate a healthy relationship with food, but this can be easier said than done. Many of us are still repairing our own negative relationship with food. Add in changing nutrition data, emotional elements, and comments and advice from family and friends and this topic can become a minefield. 

To help us navigate this difficult, complex topic I’ve invited Rachel Rothman to share her expertise. Rachel is a registered dietitian and childhood nutrition expert with a background in food science. 

Our conversation isn’t solely focused on what to feed your kids (although we do touch on that), it encompasses navigating the challenges and stresses regarding picky eaters, mealtimes, and sugary snacks and desserts.

Since it is such an expansive topic, we split the episode into two parts so that you can take time to reflect on what you learn. Make sure that you’re subscribed to the podcast so that you’ll know when the next episode publishes.
